    I took this one last night at dusk in Richmond park - unfortunately in the moment I forgot to lower the shutter spreed and ISO was way too high! You do have to think fast especially when ‘that amazing bird’ pops up in front of you! Practice is key but you still make mistakes Green Woodpecker by -DaveBailey1-

    You could also try setting the camera to manual, aperture wide open and auto ISO. Then you just need to make sure you have an appropriate shutter speed for different scenarios (Keith’s suggestions) - auto ISO (set to max of say 3200) will take care of the different lighting situations. Have fun, not sure where you live but down South we’ve got lovely sunny conditions next two days, great for bird photography.

    I expect mine will be similar to Keith’s, will check alternatively...

  5. Slow, yes but every time I picked that lens up my heartbeat quickened, loved the IQ.

    Interesting Keith, I too was wondering about that - Smith has an A9 I believe and I’m not quite sure why he is now shooting this lens with the IV and he hasn’t really used it for BIF 🤔And his last vid, eagles in flight, he used the D850🤔...I suspect he’s on some sort of deal from Sony, he ain’t no millionaire and that lens is $12k. That aside, he gets superb images with all the cameras and lenses he uses. And those G master shots are absolutely marvellous, each one is a full-size poster waiting to happen.

    Should be a good combo that - the video is supposed to be very good if that matters to you. Be interested to get your views on the AF for faster moving things, I’ve stuck with DSLR Nikons because I’m not convinced the mirrorless are quite there yet. Sony AF clearly is, as @unintended1 demonstrates in the Twitter thread hereabouts, but they’re not my cup-of-tea (technical term).
